Hi, my name is Anna and I am addicted to information.
I’ve been reading since I was two years old. It started with children’s books but I quickly moved up to encyclopedias and dictionaries.
I had and still have Hyperlexia, a condition that is frustrating beyond all of the words that won’t come out of my mouth.
I can read and type my thoughts just fine but often appear “dingy” and confused in face to face conversations.
I absorb and understand just about everything that I read. If I am not reading I am writing about things I’ve read or obsessing over the facts that I’ve collected in my brain.
Endless information, building up my catalog – hording facts. I read science magazines, websites, books, and articles. I listen to Audible, watch documentaries and YouTube videos.
Sometimes I read so much that I run out of books or videos on a particular topic.
I can’t stop. I am addicted to information.
